Julie Shapiro, a Summit Board of Education member appointed to fill a vacancy in 2022, announced her intention to run for election in November. Four board seats, including Shapiro’s, will be up for election in November.

Shapiro has years of experience in statewide and local policy including work on forest health and wolf restoration efforts in Colorado as well as serving as a K-12 outdoor natural science educator in Eagle County. She has lived in Summit County since 2010 and in Colorado’s Rocky Mountains since 2003.

As a board member, Shapiro currently sits on the District Accountability Committee, which is comprised of parents, principals, teachers and community members who make recommendations for district goals, improvement plans and spending.

If elected to another term, Shapiro said will continue to prioritize improving math and literacy outcomes, engaging families and community members, supporting housing initiatives and increasing pay for staff as well as financial sustainability.
